From Lubbock Christian University:

Following the conclusion of Concordia's (Calif.) first ever NAIA softball national title Thursday (8-3 win over Spring Hill), the NAIA announced the All-Championship Team for the 2013 NAIA Softball National Championship and Lubbock Christian University was represented with Courtney McGee and Megan Sullivan selected.

McGee, a junior pitcher from Yorba Linda, Calif., went 5-0 during the NAIA postseason and 3-0 at the final site. Her numbers in Columbus included a 1.33 ERA, three complete games, four earned runs allowed and 19 strikeouts in 21 innings pitched. She held opponents to a .188 batting average. For the season, she went a perfect 21-0 with a 1.81 ERA. At the plate, the First Team All-Sooner Athletic Conference member tied a NAIA record getting hit by a pitch 28 times.

Sullivan led everyday starters in the postseason hitting .391 with four doubles, two home runs and seven runs driven in. In Columbus, she was just .273 at the plate with three hits in 11 at-bats. All three of her hits were doubles and she drove in a pair of runs. She was walked six times. For the season, Sullivan hit .438 with 25 doubles and 10 home runs. She co-led LCU with 71 runs-driven-in and was named Sooner Athletic Conference Player of the Year.

The two players were not the only players with solid contributions in Columbus, where the Lady Chaps finished in third place. McKenzie Clemmons led LCU with seven hits, including a triple. Diana De La Paz and Latainna Eltsosie each co-led the team in runs-batted-in with three. Rebecca Billings was solid behind the plate with 32 put-outs, four assists and no errors.

LCU ended their season 61-10, with the 61 wins marking a new program record. The sixth-year program closed out their NAIA era making the NAIA National Championship in all six seasons. At the final site this season, LCU broke the NAIA final site record for stolen bases with 16. For the season, they smashed the NAIA single-season record for stolen bases with 270, as they had nine players with at least 10 stolen bases on the season (Mallory Koschany with 71).
